Space Technology Cells [STC]

ISRO has also set up Space Technology Cells at premiere institutions like Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) - Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Roorkee & Madras; Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore and Joint Research Programme with University of Pune to carry out research activities in the areas of space technology and applications.

These STCs and JRP are guided by Joint Policy Committees (JPC) chaired by Director/Vice Chancellor of the respective institute and with members from ISRO/DOS (Senior Scientists/Engineers) & the respective institution. The joint policy committee, duly assisted by technical/ scientific committee at nine ISRO-STC cells in IITs and IISc, reviews and suitable proposals are approved for taking up research.
